Tip: Categorizing images
Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.
1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:
2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.
- [[Category:Category name]]
For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:
- [[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

- Dear user, how did you create this work? as it appears, you took a picture of this work by a Samsung camera. who is the author of original work? ■ MMXX talk 17:25, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
- i am the author of this work. i was trying out drawing on the computer, but i have difficulty drawing the basis of the image with a mouse, so i drew on paper a rough sketch of the animal, took a picture of it with a camera, uploaded it on the computer, and used Microsoft Paint to fill in the coloration and shading. The only thing that i did not create was the image of a skull i used to reconstruct it, as with my Miacis illustrations, which I took from a sketch of a barbourofelis skull in Alan Turner and Maurio Anton's The Big Cats and their Fossil Relatives. --Coluberssymbol (talk) 15:49, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
